Port Bannatyne Golf Club’s Alastair Shaw won the under-16 trophy at the Argyll and Bute boys’ championship at Taynuilt Golf Club.

Alastair’s gross 69 was the second-best score of the day, although he missed out on the overall title to Steven Murphy of Glencruitten Golf Club in Oban, whose gross 66 gave him a three-shot margin of victory.

The podium places were completed by Gelencruitten’s Aidan MacCuish, who also shot a 69, with Lewis Poole the leading Rothesay Golf Club junior member in fourth place on 71.
